*repeatably slams head on table*

A couple weeks ago, I made a thread asking for the current quitting suspensions to be removed until TC could at least prevent the wrong people from being effected A humble request for TC

But, according to yesterday’s “What’s Up” not only will the current bans be in place, but they will be extended. This is insane. There have been dozens (if not hundreds) of posts and threads complaining about how pointless and ineffective the current quit penalties are. And yet this is all ignored, and the exact opposite of what we want is happening. I realize that most of TC is working on Gears 5, but for all of us to be not only ignored, but run over, is at the very least disheartening.
This is not a “Anti TC” rant, but it is pointing out the apparent lack of care to those of us who have had some major issues with the current penalties.

@TC_Octus @anon86589457 , I think we deserve a response

I HOPE they do something about the “dashboard trick”. Last night we had a dude dashboard at least 10x to avoid playing with us. If TC cares at all I can give them his GT.
I don’t want to teach anyone the trick, but TC certainly must be aware of it by now and it lets people get out of matches with ZERO penalties.

I was not aware of such a trick. But then again I don’t play on a PC

Console players can do it too. They’re usually the ones who do it (I don’t even know how to do it on PC). It’s essentially a loophole that lets people quit with no penalty. How it persists is beyond me.

Instead of doing exactly what the community asks TC likes to put their own little spin on things and basically go “hehe good idea but ours is better thanks guys!” I understand they as a Dev team want to project this image of having really great and solid ideas but no matter how intelligent someone might be they aren’t always right. Universal Tuning here and I support this post

Don’t ask me where I came up with that number either. I just typed it out of nowhere

Pretty much.

And in the games we were in yesterday it happened a few times while many of us had limited time to play.

Those that get booted get banned. Those that leave are not penalized. How is that system acceptable?

The game should recognise that you didn’t load into the map and thus not ban you because the severs messed up pre-game.

A quick check would suffice.

Let me just add indisputable proof that these false suspensions are occurring…

thank you for posting this …it boggles my freaking mind that not only has has not been fixed they have increased the punishment when you get kicked from their server!

Sadly, nothing will come of this. But I did want to voice the frustration for those of us who have been negatively effected by the current penalty system

It’s not exactly a trick since it’s pretty easy to figure out when you really think about it.

Reminds me of Microsoft’s current crappy enforcement system on Xbox one where people who purposely trash talk through text whether it be PC or Xbox then instigate people so they say something back just to get reported and then getting unfairly banned for communications while the other guy who purposely causes trouble walks away free with no punishment whatsoever. :expressionless:

That describes @Krylon_Blue quite well actually :joy:

To be fair I only go into game chat and tell them that their connection is terrible. They respond back in text calling me tons of names. Lol

Dashboard? He means Desktop right (If it IS on PC)
